Highways England have released pictures of the spill, which included a quantity of chicken skins, which led to huge tailbacks and delays on the A14 this morning.
One lane of the eastbound carriageway at Stowmarket remains closed this afternoon after a lorry shed its load of meat, clothing and furniture.
